U. Oregon Students Want College Republicans Removed From Campus for Attending ‘Stop the Steal’ Rally
“There is only one option: the College Republicans must be suspended, delegitimized by stripping its name and punished like all groups immersed in fascist ideology that came before them.”
The College Republicans at the University of Oregon recently attended a “stop the steal” rally. Since this event was also supported by the Proud Boys, certain activist students are now trying to get the Republican group removed from campus.
Chrissy Clark reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
Students at University of Oregon Attempt to Remove College Republicans from Campus
Student activists at the University of Oregon are attempting to remove the College Republicans from campus for attending a “stop the steal” rally.
Members of the university’s student government are working to “deplatform” the club by cutting off its organizational funding and revoking its status as an official campus group. The governing body has yet to dissolve the club, though it unanimously passed a resolution calling for “cultural competency training” for all organizations during a meeting with College Republican leaders. Student activists have since called on the group to condemn white supremacy and political violence, a condemnation it has issued several times.
The push to deplatform the group came after members posted a picture of themselves at a “stop the steal” rally. Hanging in the background of the Instagram post were two flags with the Proud Boys emblem on them. The Proud Boys are a far-right political group with similar violent tendencies to Antifa.
I have no interest in defending the Proud Boys, but are we supposed to believe there are no Antifa members at the University of Oregon? Really?
Take a look at this completely over-the-top column which appeared in the school paper, The Daily Emerald:
Opinion: It’s time for the University of Oregon College Fascists to go
“We are in no way defending [the Proud Boys],” Isiah De Alba, the University of Oregon College Republicans political director, told the UO student government senate, “in any way, shape, or form.”
You heard it there – they do not defend the Proud Boys, despite posing with them for pictures . No need for all of this panic and hysteria; they are not white supremacists!
In some corner of the world, maybe, there might be some unreasonable person who still doesn’t feel satisfied in that honest and vulnerable statement. For them, the Associated Students of the University of Oregon unanimously passed a resolution during that senate meeting with the club, condemning white supremacy and requiring cultural competency training for all organization leaders.
Clearly, all avenues that lead to white supremacy are covered. Racism has been eradicated from our campus. Our administration must feel so confident in this response that they need not comment on the matter. Because they haven’t. Not a single word. Not a single action. Silence.
Congratulations to the administration for doing nothing. That was the right choice.
The column leads to this predictable conclusion:
There is only one option: the College Republicans must be suspended, delegitimized by stripping its name and punished like all groups immersed in fascist ideology that came before them.
The College Republicans need to stand their ground here and not allow radical progressives, drunk on the power of cancel culture to call for their dissolution.
This is the correct position to take:

All too often, the radical left is allowed to do whatever they want on college campuses and no one says a word.
Case in point, here’s Bill Ayers of the domestic terrorist group the ‘Weather Underground’ giving a lecture at the University of Oregon in 2012. Was there any campus outrage? Were there any calls for anyone or any group to be removed from campus?
The double standard is ridiculous.

“Chief Justice John Roberts Is Corrupt
and Should Resign Immediately”
– Attorney Lin Wood GOES SCORCHED EARTH on SCOTUS Chief Justice
Beyond the Roberts opinions there is the Roberts copying Obama’s profile; chin above shoulders, looking down on you, gaze.
Of course there’s his no bias on any side stance, meaning he doesn’t know one bias from another,who he is, who anyone else is or one argument from another. Dead soul.
Wouldn’t a simple, “Kiss my @$$ commies” suffice?
While smacking them around and kicking their butts thoroughly? Yes.
Wrong move UO Repubs… embrace the Proud Boys. It’s the only “muscle” out there so far to counter the Left’s SA/Red Guard squads. The Left only values power and its use. Remember… it’s TIT for tat not wimp out.
Exactly. I was at the Stop the Steal rally in DC this past weekend – the Proud Boys are there to deter Antifa from going after us regular folks. I’d feel safer surrounded by a bunch of Proud Boys than I would surrounded by a bunch of Antifa.
Sounds like time for me to send another Benjamin to Students for Concealed Carry.
I would go so far as to call on the detractors to debate the Proud Boys in person.
Surely the side with moral high ground would relish curb stomping the repugnant in the market place of ideas.
The College Republicans should leave the school, and take their tuition $ with them. Oh, and take a dump on the floor before departing…
No. That dump part is left-wing stuff.
“That dump part is left-wing stuff”
How about announcing that “are going to see a man about a horse”?
Leftists don’t understand euphemisms.
They would understand having their bluffs called, and the stuffing kicked out of any of them that get physical.
The column includes this howler:
“Historically, fringe-right Republicans have always been a part of the Republican agenda. In 1964, George Wallace became popular for his nationalist, segregationist stances that were rooted in populism.”
These blithering idiots know exactly how to rearrange the world, of course. I mentioned to an ardent Bernie-blower that the Presidency has been a bit of a cult of celebrity for awhile now. His response, “Yeah it’s been that way since 1776.”
Is that writer referring to George Wallace the DEMOCRAT governor of Alabama?
You’d be surprised by how many college students believe that Wallace was a Republican
Wallace was a DEMOCRAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was quite comfortable in the Democrat Party, and his policies remain in place,
“In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say [black urban Democrat ghettos] now, [black urban Democrat ghettos] tomorrow, [black urban Democrat ghettos] forever.”
They also insist that around 1964, the two parties exchanged places, adopting each other’s platforms, especially on civil rights. I like to call it “Halftime in America.”
Yes. The one who was too direct in saying what Democrats say in soft ways. So, ge, and Curtiss LeMay, ran on the American Independent Party ticket.
Ah, but don’t you know that the parties have flipped since then? Yeah, me neither, but it’s an article of faith among Democrats. They all “know” it.
“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”
― Ronald Reagan
Yet again we see it. In The Coming of the Third Reich (2003), historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.” To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).
Today’s fascists call themselves “anti-fascists.” Just like the Nazis, they are totalitarian: they are determined not to allow their opponents to murmur the slightest whisper of dissent. Forcibly suppressing the speech of someone with whom one disagrees is a quintessentially fascist act.
These Dhimmi-crat, spoiled-brat, ingrate twits are really too stupid to understand the irony and hypocrisy inherent in issuing a statement that reads “There is only one option: the College Republicans must be suspended, delegitimized by stripping its name and punished like all groups immersed in fascist ideology that came before them,” and, then, possessing the gall to label their opponents as alleged “facists.” The totalitarian larvae in academia can’t be bothered too engage in a moment of introspection to discern how odious their goose-stepping, thuggish antics appear to rational minds.
Said it before, will say it again:
Most Leftists are missing three characteristics exhibited by most normal people:
No sense of humor
No sense of irony
The latter two are clearly displayed in this story.
This is so true that you will see it again and again in these stories. It’s like clockwork – highly reliable.
Since Oregon is a topic at the moment.
Don’t know if I mentioned this here yet, but back in 2014 Oregon had a pretty tight race for Governor. But in August rumors started appearing about his fiancee, the First Ho, as we called her, getting a lot of money from various groups for her consulting business, with insinuations that it was really thinly veiled influence peddling. It seems that she also had the habit of really annoying people with veiled threats, so she was becoming a persona non-grata despite her place at the table (or the small table, perhaps). Anyhoo, dirt was coming out but it wasn’t going very far, mostly because if it stuck there was a good chance that Kithaber might have to withdraw and that would likely lead to a republican governor at that point. Kitzhaber was elected and sworn in, but in January and February a bunch more dirt appeared and he reluctantly resigned which then gave us our current idiot in charge, Kate Brown. The state held off on formal charges against Kitzhaber because there were federal charges pending, but of course nothing happened on the federal level and then the statute of limitations ran out on state charges being filed. IIRC, he paid some $50K fine, which isn’t bad since there was speculation that she pocketed over $500K from consulting payoffs. I recall him even bitching about that amount and saying that he would run for office again. Democrats clearly have no concept even of shame.
I mention this because of how closely it parallels the Bidens and the coverup of the influence peddling before the election, which is now coming out after the election. I would not be surprised if this causes Biden to resign very shortly after being sworn in. In return I am sure there will be pardons for all of the various family crimes.
Oh, what a nasty bunch of fascists they’re raising up in Oregon. I guess America is really done.
Good luck arming up Leftists, bullets and firearms are hard to come by.
“the College Republicans must be suspended, delegitimized by stripping its name and punished like all groups immersed in fascist ideology that came before them.”
You mean the “fascist ideology” that demands conformity of belief, and seeks to silence and destroy anybody who does not swear fealty to the approved party line?
Then you ignorant twits better start with yourselves, because YOU are the fascists.
College Republicans need to demand that in order for them to feel safe on campus and to ensure their rights and diversity are respected that every student and professor and all members of any group that signed must be required to take a 9 week course and pass on the Constitution and Bill of Rights and forms of government with a focus on Fascism so they can learn they are actually the Fascists. Failure to enroll and pass would result in expulsion or loss of employment.
Spoken like the fascists they are!
Whoever wrote that opinion piece should be forced to present of bill of particulars describing the fascist ideology of the College Republicans to which they object.
Looks like the snowflake lefties got triggered and their sandbox messed with. Their view is not everyone’s opinion. If they can’t handle that then they should leave. This is America where everyone can voice their opinion, and believe me there is more than one opinion out there!
I think prospective employers should look closely at who is trying to “cancel” others on campus and elsewhere, and think about whether they want this kind of attitude–trying to damage other people with whom they disagree politically–brought into their own workplaces. If I was an employer, and this is my opinion to which I am entitled, I would not want this sort of thing in my workplace and would not hire anybody who was likely to bring it with them.
Bottom line–if you try to get somebody else fired, or not hired, because you disagree with him or her, don’t be upset when you get passed over for consideration yourself. Employers already do Google searches on the names of prospective employees and participation in “cancel culture” should, in my opinion, be a virtually automatic deal-breaker unless it is clear that the candidate has distanced himself or herself from the activities in question.
Noting the efforts of Cornell’s Black Law Students Association to “cancel” Professor Jacobson by boycotting his classes, I would apply this criterion to its members as well. Noting that Dean Eduardo M. Peñalver used an official Cornell web page to condemn Prof. Jacobson, and President Pollack and the Board of Trustees have taken no identifiable action (of which I know) to correct this, I would also not recommend Cornell’s law school to anybody for the foreseeable future. SUNY costs a lot less for NY residents. (I.e. if Penlaver had argued against Prof. Jacobson on a personal web page, while speaking for himself as an individual, no problem, but he spoke on behalf of the Law School which, in the absence of corrective action, makes the University a party to his actions.) More on this here: https://www.nas.org/blogs/article/an-open-letter-to-eduardo-m-penalver-dean-of-cornell-law-school
The same standard works both ways. I also would not hire somebody who tried to “cancel” another person for supporting Black Lives Matter regardless of what I think of BLM Global Network as run by Patrisse Cullors. The basic rule is, argue and disagree all you want in social media and on blogs, but don’t bring it into the workplace because no employer should have to tolerate the effects of cancel culture on morale and mutual trust among coworkers.
